Just under 3 hours drive from Perth and a little over an hour from Margaret River and the coastal strip, the area is your opportunity to unwind and enjoy the very best of the South West.
Bridgetown itself enjoys a rustic charm with a unique wooded backdrop and an enviable array of eating houses and boutique shops. Once the apple growing centre of the state, Bridgetown is now famous for its rolling hills, scenic drives, jarrah forests, starry nights and the longest flowing river in the state, the mighty Blackwood.
